Tanker Crashes And Spills Sweet Chocolate Across Polish Motorway

A large tanker truck crashed and rolled in Poland, spilling gallons of liquid chocolate across the major A2 highway.

NPR reports that the tanker was traveling near Slupca in western Poland when it flipped onto a highway median. Roughly a dozen tons of chocolate were onboard at the time and authorities were forced to close the highway for hours to fix the mess.

The driver walked away from the crash with minor injuries and was treated at a local hospital.

The innocent chocolate never stood a chance

For some strange reason, rescue crews opted against scooping up and saving as much chocolate as they could. Instead, they decided to spray warm water across the hardened chocolate to melt it and wash it away. Some heavy machinery was even called in to fix the mess.

According to Slupca police department media officer Marlena Kukawka, authorities did see the funny side to the drama.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen so many smiles on the faces of emergency rescue folks and police officers at the scene of an accident and that’s despite the fact that they still have a ton of work to do.”

If we were part of the rescue crew, it would have been hard to resist the temptation of making delicious snow angels in the chocolate. Or, at the very least, taken some home for some “research” and “taste testing.”
